BA said check-in might take longer than usual as they make up a backlog Credit: PA

British Airways say that IT glitches that caused chaos for some travellers overnight and this morning have now been fixed and passengers are being checked in normally.

The company said they were catching up with the backlog after the problems hit their check-in systems.

The check in system is now working and customers are being checked in as normal in London and overseas.

We are checking in customers as normal, although it may take longer than usual.

We would encourage customers to check in online before they reach the airport.

BA passengers vent anger after 'global' systems failure

Passengers have been venting their anger after some faced hours of delays due to a "global" failure with check-in systems at the carrier.

Many said there had been little information from staff, with one saying that she had to help another passenger who became ill due to the long wait.

A number of passengers also reported delays with bag check-ins and collections, though it was unclear if this was directly related to the check-in issues.
